PREVIEW: Bucks take on Tamworth


UP NEXT:


We are back on the road as we face Tamworth away on Saturday 6th January.

The Bucks


The Bucks go into this game following a late 2-1 loss to Alfreton on New Year’s Day.


Following the loss manager Craig Elliott said:


" It was a game that slipped through our fingers. I'm upset we couldn't get at least a draw for our fans.


"We had two outstanding early chances but a defensive error let them in, then we went two behind. The second half started brightly for us and we defended strongly throughout.


But Alfreton managed the game well and we couldn't achieve any tempo. They've got good, experienced players.


"There's still a lot of the season to go and we're working hard behind the scenes. You know in this league that if you have one good month it can change the face of everything, We've got a bunch of honest lads and I'm sure we'll get things to where I want them to be."
